Drag and Drop to system tray icon

Recommended Posts

I have an gui that minimizes to the system tray. My GUI also has a drag and drop ctrl, listview. Is it possible to make it able to populate the drag and drop control from the system tray? So I want to be able to drag to the system tray icon and it populate a listview.

I do not believe this is possible.

The icons in the systray belong to the Desktop and pass a few messages back to the parent app when the icon is clicked - such as opening the tray context menu. However, a drag/drop structure does not appear to be one of these messages and the few references I have been able to find about this suggest that it is not supported by Windows. :)

Sorry about that - I will try harder next time. :)
